Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Physics and Astronomy
Closing date: October 31, 2020
The High Energy Physics group at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow position on the ATLAS experiment. The UBC ATLAS group data analysis focus is on searches for a wide range of physics beyond the standard model (Long-Lived Particles, Vector-Like Quarks, Leptoquarks), precision measurements in the top sector (including EFT interpretation). It also has a strong involvement in the use of machine learning techniques in particle physics. The group is involved in the Canadian effort on the new inner tracker strip detector (ITk), in particular its readout system. It is also playing a leading role in track reconstruction and overall operation of the experiment’s present tracking system. Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. in particle physics by the time of appointment.
Postdoctoral Fellow Position, Gene Therapy and Blood Research laboratory
